At the heart of Broadway! Lights outside and a classic decoration inside. Helpful personnel, narrow seats but astonishing view even high up the mezzanine. As for "Chicago" I have no words- just continuous applause !

Came to see Broadway's longest running musical 'Chicago'. Small theatre whee even to mezzanine back tow seats get a reasonable view. All seats in stalls have good viewing. But in mezzanine the seats are too close to each other so your feet are uncomfortable.

Saw a very well done Chicago - theatre staff was incredibly friendly, our seats were upgraded, not a bad seat in the house. The show was well run, great experience!

Chicago was amazing. The theatre facilities are very poor. No leg room (worse than flying with a budget airline for 2:30hrs), with a single toilet available - no chance to make in the intermission. 2 bottles of water $10!!!! I am surprised the theatre is...More

We saw Chicago here and it was a brilliant show. The acting and singing was excellent and the entire cast were first rate. This was a very enjoyable evening and it's a show well worth seeing.

You can call 212-239-6200 or 800-447-7400. There is no direct line to the theater, but you will be able to speak with the theater and ticketing reps.
